Leonard Nimoy, 1931-2015: We Have Been, And Always Shall Be, Your Fan

Just a couple of pioneers
Leonard Nimoy died today at the age of 83. I was one of those kids who were just a little too young to watch Star Trek during its prime-time run, but the afternoon reruns in the ’70s were my introduction to science fiction (and you could still buy those nifty “phaser” disc shooter guns, too, even though they looked like nothing from the show). And the animated series came along just before I aged out of Saturday morning cartoons. In high school, Trek was a nerd bonding ritual, at least until Dungeons and Dragons came along.

We also watched Agents of SHIELD, which is way better than watching the Duggars, but is still not quite a top-notch TV experience.
